Appearance: clear orange, frothy beige head, lots of drippy lace

Overall: an interesting intersection of styles
Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 15/20
Pretty coppery pour. Presents a spicy/yeasty nose...fruity and pungent. The flavors are sweet roasted malts, light Belgian spiciness, fruity yeast and fairly robust herbal/earthy hop bite. Pretty interesting. SpringsLicker (3637) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2007
On tap at the brewery Dark Lord Weekend.
A long-lasting creamy white head crowns this slightly cloudy, medium gold brew.
Fragrant aroma, flowery, spicy, herbal. Some lavender.
The flavor is slightly sweet with a flowery finish.
Quite different. Nice. bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Golden amber coloured with a medium sized head. Nice balanced although a bit too sweet for me. Notes of malt, hops, spices, cloves, banana, citrus and candied sugar. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2007
My first 3F Belgian, and I found it tasty. It was everything I expected after reading the description. tasted some nice clovey bananas, as well as American character. Nice.

At 3F’s. A light yeasty aroma that reeks of Belgian ale. A slightly golden amber pour with excellent lacing. The expected clovish/corriander flavor followed by fruit and seal with the citrus hops that lead to the excellent bitter finish. Good carbonation and good mouthfeel. A full textured palate. A very fine offering. HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
Draught. At the brewpub. Hazy light orange-amber with an average white drool of head. Decent sweet caramel malt aroma, mild tart fruit acidity, and pungent dry herbal hops and dry lightly spicy yeast. The taste is very hoppy, some light tart fruit, slightly boozy, I detected something almost like rye bread in there, the hops ultimately seemed a little green and grassy. Sticky, surprisingly thick body, good dry astringency and carbonation, with a surprisingly long sharply bitter and slightly acid finish. Very nice - definitely a hop/Belgian ale hybrid, slightly reminiscent of the Chouffe Houblon. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2007
Chicago Trip. Saturday 16:30+. Hoppy Belgian yeast aroma. Nice almost tripple flavour. Candy sugary and some hops. MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2007
On tap at the FFF brewpub. Pours a nice light golden/amber color into a tulip glass. Very little head. Aromas of hoppy citrus with a bit of pine and a little bit of bread. Flavors of grapefruit, yeast and a bit of orange. Upfront hops give it away that this is a FFF brew. Medium body with a nice fast sweet bitter finish. Maybe a little off base for this style, but it is a beer that I could find myself sitting down and drinking again. bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2007
Nice piney centennial flavor and aroma with the pine coming through big time. Not really getting that many belgian notes at all in this. pretty good pale ale.
